Chess TIPS for the Improving Player, Paperback (February 2008)
Gives practical advice for club players who want to take the next step towards chess mastery. The author's approach is far more creative than the usual tips such as "develop your pieces" and "control the centre". Instead of repeating cliches, he scrutinises a number of chess positions, asking himself 'What can be learned from them?'
